Indeed. If I hit Apostrophe (with Shift) on the German keyboard, ZTree prompts
No Match: '*.*
(provided there is no filename starting with Apostrophe).

- Filenames starting with Apostrophe seem quite seldom (at least in my projects in my company),
- in case one wants to spell-search files starting with Apostrophe, he can launch Prompted Spell Search ("|" key).
